== == == == == == Financial obligations of either parent depends upon the terms of the child support order. If there is not a court order then the parent cannot be forced to pay a specific amount nor other expenses until an order of support has been received. Yes, the noncustodial parent is OBLIGATED to pay child support, figured out by a program entered into a computer program, based on each parents net income, as well as time shared by each parent, with the child or children. Both parents are required to equally share the child care costs incurred, while the custodial parent works and also goes to school in every state that I know of. As well as, costs incrued for any medical costs for the child over what the insurance pays out. Of course you need a court order to enforce this, although every court that I am aware of, will uphold these terms.
i had my ex pay child support, half medical, half child care....however that is normally figured in with the support
yes, he pays
No. But if your father has retired and is paying child support the child support order might need to be modified based on the income he have now.
No. He should pay for at least half of the burial and funeral costs. The father still owes any past-due (unpaid) support.
In general, child support is a percentage of net income. If the obligor has the child for an extended period of time, the court may suspend support for that period.
I believe that you should. Do you care what happens to your child when you are not there? Are you concerned about their health and well-being when you are not there? Of course you are. As the father you have a life-long responsibility for that child. Take care of them and love them.
I don't think he should pay child support if he is providing half the support of the children. Why would you want he to pay more? Child support is paid by absent parents.
$50 at the most
If the child resides with you and more then half of the cost for the child is supplied by the father. The non-custodial parent can claim the child as a dependent if he has a court order stating thus. Otherwise no.
The child is almost an adult, it seems a bit late to ask for child support now. By the time this get to court, the point may be moot. However, in some jurisdictions the court will reach back to assess child support.You need to consult an attorney.
half of it the other half goes to the other parent of the child or no cause you both have the money to take care of the child
Every child receives half of its chromosomes from its mother and half from its father.
Child support is the other parents half of the expenses your child costs each month. You pay the other half. What you do in your private life, sleep with etc, can not change the fact that each parent have to pay for their child. He has an obligation to pay for his child just like you do so the child support goes to the one who has custody for the child. The court do not care about that you had an affair and will not let your child lose 50% of his/hers financial support because of it. Whether to pay or not is not up to the parents.
Yes, you can.
Absolutely yes. If a man doesn't want children then he must practice contraception. You were half of the team that gave the child life and therefore you are responsible for it.
Child support you pay is not usually tax deductible; you would need the situation to fulfill all requirements of the child being a dependent--living with you, paying for more than half of the child's costs and so on.
You can not modify your child support. Only the court can modify your child support. It is possible the court will do that. It is unusual for your wife to get half your salary. In setting child support, this is a deductible item in all states, that should have been taken into consideration. If not, you can request a modification. see links below
its 50/50. half from the mother and half from the father.
Yes if you pay over half of the child support.
Is your mother still alive? Find out if your father made a will. Are you an only child? If not, he made have left his half to another child. Get a lawyer.
i receive a letter that says a other men is adopting my child, i have not payed child support for 1 in a half because i do not have a job. my ex lives in Tennessee
If you pay more than half their living expenses, you get to claim them. This is especially true if you can prove that he is not paying child support.
NO, as half of the genetic material for the child is from the father they will always have similar DNA patterns.
Typically, most states do not allow the courts to award more than half of your income to child support.
No. If you are providing more than one half of the support for the child, you may be entitled to claim them on your tax return.
